Got myself a kitchen scale, and the fully built weight with SA caps are as follows;

Paradox: 1943g (4.28 lbs)
Reflex: 1440g (3.17 lbs)

Not the heaviest 60%, but the Paradox is up there. Reflex is definitely the more portable of the 2.

I love the look of this board! I'd be all over it if it was a bit cheaper. As futurecrime said, it's expensive compared to other 60%, but it does look to be a special board.

Good luck with the GB and may the RNG gods be in your favor.

Maybe I'll be able to trade myself to one of these after they ship... :thinking:

Low quanitity, and several difficult cuts and other varying things. Still very expensive yes.

Think of it this way - this is basically 2 Group Buys of 15 units for each of what is quite complicated design, with 2 full prototypes and multiple plates & weights in different materials & finishes made for each design.

Those that choose to Join the GB will share the cost of making the boards a reality.

If the GB does not meet the MOQ, the cost to this point will be born by myself, as these designs will not be ran again.

Looking at the plate you have fixed ANSI with 7u bottom row and split right shift. The only choices you have are between stepped and normal caps lock and between 2u and split backspace.

This is correct. I can share the plate file to GB participants if requested to modify the layout and make your own plates.

Hey Guys, as the Order Forms will open in just over 24 Hours, I'd like to say a couple things.

For those of you that are looking at participating in the GB, know that you are paying for the design, the associated machining costs due to their complexity, and sharing some of the development costs. Join knowing you will be receiving 1 of 15 for that design, for they will not be ran again. Please do not join just to try out the mount, as there will be upcoming models with the "O-ring-Sandwich-Floating mount", in a less complex design, at a lower price point.

For those that are STILL looking to joins the GB, for your support of this project, a heartfelt thank you from me. No matter if we make MOQ, I understand the risk you are taking for joining a GB with "hilariously bad" pricing, ran by a first time runner, with an unproven mount design. Your faith in me is sincerely appreciated.

If this GB is successful, In addition to production updates, I will gradually release information on the "proper" way to assemble the board, the Anti-Flex plate design and switch installation sequence, O-Ring & post isolation sleeve installation and so on. Fun times ahead! ;D

Just also want to say that I really appreciate your open, clear and constant communication!

The boards are really interesting and Iím on the edge of trying to get one.

One question: How the the 7075 different from the 6063 aluminum? Are there any noticeable changes in feel expected?
The same goes for the hard anodizing...is it just more durable or does it also give a different feel/look?

There will be minimal noticeable difference between the materials for their application on keyboard cases. Unless you double duty your keyboard as a blunt weapon.  :D

Purely as a material, 7075 is a much tougher alloy then 6063 with higher tensile strength & hardness.

Hard anodizing actual have functional purpose, as it is very abrasion resistant, and does not take on scratches easily unless impacted. Normal anodizing is mostly cosmetic with some scratch protection, as the anodizing is very thin, and you do need to baby it.

The look & feel of both types of anodizing depends on the treatment before the actual anodizing, such as sandblasting/polishing/chemical polishing etc. more then the actual type of anodizing. Hard anodizing does impart a color hue depending on the type of alloy due to the anodizing thickness, so mostly darker color is used for their dyeing.

There will be minimal noticeable difference between the materials for their application on keyboard cases. Unless you double duty your keyboard as a blunt weapon.  :D

Purely as a material, 7075 is a much tougher alloy then 6063 with higher tensile strength & hardness.

Hard anodizing actual have functional purpose, as it is very abrasion resistant, and does not take on scratches easily unless impacted. Normal anodizing is mostly cosmetic with some scratch protection, as the anodizing is very thin, and you do need to baby it.

The look & feel of both types of anodizing depends on the treatment before the actual anodizing, such as sandblasting/polishing/chemical polishing etc. more then the actual type of anodizing. Hard anodizing does impart a color hue depending on the type of alloy due to the anodizing thickness, so mostly darker color is used for their dyeing.

Navy dark blue 7075?  ;D
